Potential Music Festival at Overland Golf Course 

A proposal for a potential outdoor music festival at Overland Golf Course has been brought to the city. Discussions are still in the preliminary stages. Denver is one of two cities currently exploring the opportunity. The city has been evaluating the potential music event by first reviewing it with local residents in the Overland Park, Athmar Park and Ruby Hill community, as well as with the golf course community. Decisions regarding the possible music festival will be made in the spring of 2017.

The festival is being reviewed through the public input process which includes conversations with nearby Registered Neighborhood Organizations (RNOs), Golf Advisory Board, Women and Men's Club at Overland, and Parks and Recreation Advisory Board (PRAB), plus community meetings. If Denver is chosen as the host city, the festival will be reviewed by City Council as well. 

Learn more about the Festival
When: Tuesday, March 14 @ 6:00PM
Where: Overland Golf Course Clubhouse
1801 S. Huron St.
Denver, CO 80223

Please join the City and County of Denver, the Overland Park Neighborhood Association, the Ruby Hill-Godsman Neighborhood Association and the Athmar Park Neighborhood Association for the second public meeting to continue the conversation regarding a potential music festival at the Overland Golf Course.
